The 2018 World Cup kicks off tomorrow. Just because the USMNT blows and didn’t make the tournament, that’s no reason for you not to pay attention to the best sporting event on the planet. Here’s everything you absolutely must know about Group A, all in one neat little video.
The favorites to advance out of the group are definitely Uruguay, even if Luis “Bitey McBiterman” Suárez does that thing he’s always liable to do: bite someone. Either Russia or Egypt could join Uruguay in next round, though Saudi Arabia—probably the worst team in the tournament—have very little shot of doing so.
If you’d like to know even more about these teams, check out our previews for each below. You can find the rest of our World Cup previews here.
